9:00am
>> i think ricky martin is more than a one hit wonder he was in menudo. >> go ahead and give the forecast. >> he was in menudo. >> let's get right to it. very brief i can give you more on one hit wonders, sentinel sat rad a lot of cloud cover satellite radar not showing you the cloud cover and fog across the area, bottom line, more of derstorm more cloudiness, this afternoon more humidity and more warm temperatures, good news, up near 80, out to the west, cold front, showers will bring us drier air. regan national, 71, off to a warm start, 68 ocean city, 66 winchester your forecast, mix of clouds, i think a little more sunshine than yesterday, could be a shower or thunder storm this afternoon most of the day dry high temperature 80, on the humid side more
9:01am
details on the forecast more on one hit wonders in a couple minutes tony alison back to you. all right. turning to our top story, crackson the washington monument we are waiting for the national park service to give us a status update. >> it was closed last month many are wondering if it will reopen sherry leon the mall with that story good morning. >> reporter: good morning, it has taken more than a month for structural engineers to inspect the washington monument and come up with their results to assess the damaged inside and out. today we will get an idea what they found and what will be needed to fix the monument, this is a national landmark, visitors were evacuated during the august 23rd earthquake witnesses say pieces of the ceiling and debris came
9:02am
crashing down inside later that day an aerial inspection spotted a 4-foot crack at the top. structural engineers who specialize in earthquake damage and historical architects were brought in they will issue their assessment later today and recommendations for repairs until then the national park service has not said when it might reopen. when,. >> as of right now we don't have that information. so we are telling people to stand by. our number one goal is to have the monument open and once again go to the top and view the city, named after george washington from his monument. the monument suffered additional damage, during hurricane when water got in through the cracks, the bark service says that -- park service say that is will make winterization even more important they will temporarily fill those cracks with
9:03am
additional rain and snow -- so additional rain and snow will not get in. it will likely take several months to make repairs, national park service will hold a press conference to discus that report so we will get a better idea then. back to you. >> quite fascinating thank you. new this morning, one american dead another injured after a shooting at a cia office in kabul afghanistan the gunman was an afghan employed by the u.s. government, he was shot and killed u.s. embassy says the motive for the attack is still under investigation. two years, in an iranian prison this morning two american hikers are back home with loved ones. they got back to new york, yesterday. in 2009 iran convicted them of spying after they crossed the unmarked border with iraq. they told reporters they didn't know they actually crossed the border, and described being kept in isolation.
9:04am
we heard the screams of other prisoners, being beaten and there was nothing we could do to help them. >> every time we complained about our conditions guards would immediately remind us of comparable conditions at guantanamo bay. the prison never told them they were being released last wednesday and only found out when they were hustled to meet a diplomat from oman whose first words were let's go home. another government shut down looms friday night if congress can't agree on a budget. right now the sticking point is funding fema for disaster relief. senate blocked the house bill friday because it didn't have enough money for fema. president obama rallied the troops at congressional black caucus over the weekend. take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes, shake it off, stop complaining, stop grumbling,
9:05am
stop crying. now this morning the senate is voting on a democratic plan. it is a sure sign the 2012 republican presidential nomination is up for grabs, business man herman cane won a florida straw poll over the weekened 37% of the vote perry kim in second with 15 -- came in second with 15%, romney won a michigan straw poll. is new jersey governor chris christy having second thoughts on a run for the white house. he is seriously considering throwing his hat into the race for the gop nod governor's press secretary called it speculation and said christy repeatedly said he will not run. the governor will be in the national spotlight this week when he give as speech at the
9:06am
regan presidential library. president barack obama in full campaign mode as he arrives in california he was seattle for two private events yesterday. he is in san jose california where he is holding a town hall hosted by linked in, he is also speaking in mountain view, san diego and los angeles he ends his west coast swing in denver tomorrow. one of the most fascinating stories that came out last week was the greatest mind of the 20th century wrong about something scientists at the world's largest physics lab say subatomic particles have been observed travelling faster than the speed of light that contradicts einstein who says it makes it a pretty big deal. joining us is the professor at george mason university. good to meet you here is the first thing we should make clear as i understand it before we get to detales of this, this
9:07am
has to be replicated, by some other scientists before we can take it as a given is that right? >> sure any time anybody comes along with an extraordinary claim, no body will really accept it unless it is replicated. >> but there is no reason to believe these guys are lying, you just need to prove it in another facility in another way. >> no motivation to lie, they would just look like fools. but let me tell you, exactly what it is they did. >> okay. >> this is not from an experiment done in someone's garage of course. what was done is create a beam of subatomic particles, send them across a distance of some 500 miles and observe, how they would arrive, compared to a beam of light covering the same distance what they found, is that in that 500 miles, these nutrinos arrive 60 feet ahead of light beam, beating the speed of light by a tiny
9:08am
amount. >> i read it was 60 nanoseconds but when you put it at 60 feet that is pretty significant it seems -- minuscule over 500 miles. >> all depends how accurate you can measure the discrepancy they claim to measure the discrepancy to no more uncertainty of 10 feet that is a very significant deviation. >> okay how are subatomic particles, sent 500 miles and captured some place else? how does that work? they are travelling through the air? >> they are travelling through the air the particles they use can travel right through the earth, this very second, trillions of nutrinos are passing through your body you don't feel a thing these are unusual particles, and they have had all kinds of fascinating discoveries, decades, it took to demonstrate. >> they can assume different
9:09am
shapes. >> what they call flavours, different flavours. i should mention, that the possibility, father than light travel was first -- faster than light travel was first raised in the 60s and most physicists gave up on the idea, because there has been a series of false reports over the years, in terms of where things stand relative to einstein's theory of relativity, people should be aware, that even though einstein did say that nothing can exceed the speed of light, what he is referring to is take a particle from below the speed of light and accelerate it to the speed of light and beyond that is possible. >> that is impossible. >> however, the way one can get around this, these research which ares in the 60s proposed, maybe these things were not always created at super light speed from the very moment of
9:10am
creation, and if you accept that, you would basically have three classes of particles, so it is always below speed of light and above the speed of light and right at the speed of light. >> first class, business class and coach. >> yeah. with separation. >> of course. so in that sense, there is no real fundamental disagreement with relativity. >> let me ask you two questions the media we like to simplify things all i heard talk about this weekend was time travel. >> yep >> if it is -- if we can duplicate what these scientists performed does that mean theoretically time travel is possible? >> well, let's see, personally, i don't think so. it is not that i would categorically say time travel is impossible, however i think exceedingly unlikely, the other
9:11am
thing some people suggested these particles are really travelling faster than light they could be used for signaling back in time there is a great movie, frequency, he receives messages from his dead father. >> right bruce willis? >> yeah. >> i don't think that is possible, if the beyond exists but they do have bizarre properties i might add a decade ago i did some published work which suggested precisely the idea that it might be faster than light different flavour of packeon, excuse me different flavour of nutrino, but still the result is not conclusive but still it did raise this possible, and other people have considered this. >> we will have to watch and see what happens. >> all right doctor thank you for coming in helps us
9:12am
understand a little more. >> alison. or me no, it is me sorry. >> here i am >> wish i could go back in time 10 seconds. there is a billion air philanthropies in our area, ready to get rid of some of his cash and he is looking for your help. we talked about it last week, a new development for you. 
9:13am
9:14am
9:15am
welcome back, 9:15 a.m., the 14-year-old suspended for wearing a banana suit heads back to class today. colonial forge high school sophomore got suspended for 10 days and facing expulsion for running along the sidelines of a school football game in a banana suit. the school lifted the
9:16am
suspension friday, ryan's mother says he suffers from autism she is glad to have the situation resolved but concerned about the scrutiny her son now faces. pro bare nary period i am hoping -- probationary period i am hoping he isn't at school underneath a microscope he has one thing to do wrong and out the door. >> ryan will be on probation for the five remaining days of the suspension. well, tony a local business man recently gave away a million dollars to a local charity on top of the 5 million he gave last november he is not done yet, bob mccart knee wrote about this generous person yesterday he joins us to talk more about bill conway cofounder of the carlyle group good morning bob. >> hi alison. >> he is worth $2.7 billion. >> according to forbes magazine he won't say exactly how much he is worth but he doesn't --
9:17am
that is what forbes said. >> he wants to get rid of half. >> he wants to give away more than half of it possibly quite a bit more than half of it before he passes away and he is 62. >> this is just something he is thinking about he is not sick he is not predicting he is just -- >> no, he is still working. >> just looking to be a generous, and -- i wish that i had the money to do that. >> so do we all. >> i hope i would be as thoughtful as mr. conway is, but what is his personality like when you sat down and talked to him for this article what is he like? >> yeah, he is kind of a restless personality he rocks back and forth in his chair as he was talking to me he has a lot of ideas, welling up in him he is thoughtful e thought he
9:18am
was -- i thought he was trying to consider what is the best way to use this well, that he has. he talks a lot about how he feels he has been luckier than other people he doesn't necessarily think he is better than other people he is motivated a lot but not exclusively by his religious faith he is roman catholic, he goes to church almost every day, worships at st. patricks downtown and little flower in bethesda, and he is quite satisfied and happy he has given away a lot of money for food, to food banks, to help the homeless, and shelters, health care for the poor but feels as though a lot of this is stop gap giving money you give away and helps people and that is good and worth while but he would like to use the bulk of his wealth, for more permanent solutions, and he is looking for ideas on that.
9:19am
>> trying to do it locally. >> much of it locally it is just a little fuzzy, certainly most of the money he has given away it seems so far has been local he is very committed to the washington area, he lives in mclane carlyle group is based downtown, it is a local, very successful, private equity firm, and i think much of it, certainly most of it would be given away locally when you have more than a billion dollars to give away there is plenty to go around. >> wow. >> what he is really interested in and he got this idea from his wife, is trying to find a way to use this money to create jobs, to help the poor so that the poor, don't just take a hand out but have something that lasts and goes forward, for a long time not just supports them but also their families and creates money and revenue for the community, so he is looking for ideas on
9:20am
that. i have been overwhelmed and i think he has as well by the response to this column, we had more than 100 responses by early afternoon yesterday and 360 by this morning. >> at the end of the article you give an address he passed it on, it is conway@-- >> no, enquiries. >> enquirys@carlyle.com. >> people are copying me as well we have more than 360 responses i am hoping to publish some of them in the post tomorrow and second page of the metro section and i am sure i am going to write a follow up column for thursday on this talking about ideas we have gotten. >> really i was trying to remember the old adage not just feeding someone but teaching them how to farm. >> give a man a fish, feed him for a day teach him to fish he
9:21am
eats for a lifetime. he uses that adage as a way to describe what he is trying to do. >> well, my mind might think like him now if only i had the bank account. >> that is what is special about this, everybody likes to talk about solutions and ideas but here is someone with the resources to make something big happen. >> following in the footsteps, if you will, of warren buffet, bill gates, these billionaires have asked others in the same position to do the same, to give. >> well, there is a giving pledge, of billionaires they is promised they are trying to get billionaires to promise to give away half their wealth before they die he is planning to do that himself but he specifically wants to use the money as i said to create something lasting and ideally, create jobs, good paying jobs, for the poor. >> bob mccartney great article. wonderful isn't it tony?
9:22am
>> fantastic thank you very much. one of the greatest rivalries takes center stage for monday night football red skins and cowboys face off for the first time this season in dallas these two teams have squared off 102 times since the 60s. 42 of those games were decided by less than a touchdown catch the monday night show down between the skins and cowboys, on my 20, 8:30 p.m. tonight following the game stay tuned for the live post game show from cowboy stadium. bill changes have taken place across the country since september 11th wait until you hear some of the changes made in the police force in new york city what they now have the capability of doing, next. >> holly is checking out the home of the future holly. >> reporter: i am. in fact, we are live down in west potomac park. we are talking about great minds, great ideas, and great

9:48am
past couple years. >> we have been thinking we like to design a home that appeals to a lot of people. this house is very livable. >> it is. >> when you walk inside you feel like it is your home we wanted something when you sit down, you don't feel uncomfortable you want to have people over and it is an easy, accessible way of doing it. >> you would choose this home even if it didn't have the energy efficient benefits you would say i want to live there. the floor plan looks good a lot of features demonstrate that. >> we want to bring in lee for that. part of the big thing one of the things that sets you guys apart is how cost effective you are under the $250,000 mark. officially the price will be released tomorrow. >> you built this home for $243,000. >> materials and labor. >> affordability is important.

9:52am
come and learn more back to you in studio. >> we are loving these homes. >> comfy cozy >> i am telling you i am so impressed like i said earlier i covered the first one in 2002 and everyone since and this year it is amazing to me how beautiful and livable, and not to mention all the other benefits of being cost effective and energy efficient these homes are i am in awe of these brilliant minds. thanks. well, it is hard to say it there are some pets who just have a harder time getting adopted into forever homes some may have health issues challenging personalities some are older. >> there are some positive things to adopting an older pet. annie joins us with a local shelter that can shed some light good morning. >> good morning thank you today we are featuring some pet, that have a sad but sweet story, right. yes and joining me now is randy martin. events director and volunteer with pet connect rescue along
